Alternative Songs is a record chart published by the music industry magazine Billboard that ranks the most-played songs on American modern rock radio stations. Introduced by Billboard in September 1988 and named Modern Rock Tracks until June 2009, it was initially compiled based on weighted reports from several national rock radio stations.
- Africa – Toto. This song is so iconic that they even named a whole continent after it. It must be one of the most cathartic songs in existence and boasts one of the greatest choruses ever written.
- Lovesong – The Cure. It doesn’t get more gothic than a moody Robert Smith singing a melancholy fuelled love song in a dark cave. Even though he looks like he eats bats for breakfast, this song is actually brilliant and is one the most underrated love songs around.
- Nine Million Bicycles – Katie Melua. Who really knows how many bicycles are actually in Beijing? Apparently, Katie Melua does. Even though she presents absolutely no bicycle based evidence to support her claim, we’re still inclined to believe her because she writes amazing music.
- Last Night On Earth – Green Day. “You are the moonlight of my life, every night. Giving all my love to you”. Possibly the most unapologetic love song ever written by Green Day, and every word of this rock ballad is so heartfelt.
A great choice if you're searching for first dance alternative songs. It's sort of a cross between a ballad and an uptempo song. You can still dance, but it's got a little snap to it. It's also perfect for clapping, which means you're friends and family will probably start it halfway through the song.
